comment How does the new type of secret room work?
Good grief, this must be why I can't find regular secret rooms any more... that totally throws my bomb strategy off :(

comment What happens if a follower meets themselves?
-1: this is really just griping about Blizzard not doing it the way you wanted them to, and it took me a second to realize that your alternative scenarios aren't actually in the game.

comment Jewel crafting gems cost more than cut, how to make money
Huh just out of curiosity (and as someone who's never played WoW), what's special about Tuesdays?

@Nevir then you'll run out of space on the mules, too :)

comment What are the dangers of accepting gifts from unknown accounts on Steam?
@JuanManuel Huh good point. If it's the first infringement I think Valve would probably just delete the game though, especially since Cort contacted support about it.

comment What are the dangers of accepting gifts from unknown accounts on Steam?
There's pretty much no way accepting the gift could hurt you unless the Steam service is seriously compromised. If you want to be really safe, make Steam forget your credit card details, turn on Steam Guard, accept the game and see what happens.

comment Does the Drake Sword in Dark Souls not scale with any stats?
Related if you want some ideas as to which weapon to choose next.

comment How long is StarCraft 2's typical input delay compared to other competitive games?
I might grab the SCII demo and take a tcpdump of the network traffic it generates, if it lets you do multiplayer - you'd probably see spikes of outgoing packets on a 200 ms period, it would make for a neat graph.

comment Can I prevent unwanted items from appearing more than once in the same playthrough?
Sounds like confirmation bias then. If you really want to be rigorous start up a spreadsheet and write down everything you find; keeping it all in your head leads to remembering the five times you got Teleport and forgetting the ten times you got other stuff.

comment Can you order your monsters to commit suicide?
I know you could do it on Raven Black's implementation, at least.

comment Is timing important during combat?
I'll have to do some testing, but I really got the impression that skeletons would stagger more easily if I damaged them after they started their attack animation, rather than just attacking them whenever.

comment Does poison go away over time or do I have to cure it?
I spent some time enraging spiders for science and wrote up my results. Turns out, poison damage is uniformly random - and painful if you're not resistant.

I blinded those spiders with sciance!

comment Does poison go away over time or do I have to cure it?
I might do some spider-baiting when I go home to see if I can map out how poison damage varies over time :)

comment In Grimrock, where do the dragons intersect to open the door? I opted not to use automap
I think the dragon ate SLC before he could finish writing that last "automap" :)

comment How do I re-light a torch?
A clarification: depleted torches, which glow with a more orange light, can be placed in wall sconces and will glow with full brightness. However, completely burned out torches (which have a different inventory icon) will no longer provide light even in sconces.
